Dr. John in performance at The Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
Oct 22, 2013 07:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Dr. John, or Mac Rebennack as known to friends and family, is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. His very colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford.
A notorious gun incident forced the artist to give up the guitar and concentrate on organ and piano. He has played on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones' infamous Exile On Main Street. After a half century of creating music for others and himself, Dr. John continues to write, arrange, produce and interpret with passion. Still maintaining a rapid pace of worldwide touring, he continues to dazzle and delight audiences across the globe.
